Earlier this week, it was reported that the world’s biggest electronic festival has signed a contract to stay in Boom, Belgium for the next 66 years. This year, the festival drew in a massive crowd of 400,000 attendees and clinched the prestigious title of being the world’s top festival in DJ Mag’s 2023 Top 100 Festivals poll. With the new contract bringing us all the way to 2090, Boom’s De Shorre Park will remain the location of Tomorrowland, as the festival continues their mission of providing long-term commitment to the local community.
“We want to continue investing in the coming years to make the domain even more unique,” Tomorrowland founders Michiel and Manu Beers said in a press release announcing the news. “Thanks to this new agreement, we not only ensure the future of the Tomorrowland festival, but we also provide a unique park experience throughout the year for young and old, for local residents and other visitors,”.
Since 2005, Tomorrowland has undertaken significant enhancements at De Schorre, including projects like the Stairway to Unity, One World Bridge, Spark sculptures, and stage upgrades introduced before 2023. Essential infrastructure, such as cabling, water systems, and wheelchair-accessible pathways, has also been improved.
The festival’s partners confirmed their ongoing commitment to sustainable practices, emphasizing responsible water usage and native greenery planting. They’ve also expanded infrastructure, including roads and squares, and installed an extensive network for electricity, data, and fiber optics.
Fresh from their return to South America, Tomorrowland unveiled the first phase of their Tomorrowland Winter 2024 lineup last week, featuring electronic music icons like Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Sebastian Ingrosso, and many others.
To get an in-depth look into the enchanting world of Tomorrowland, fans can check out the festival’s recent Amazon Music documentary, “We Are One,” released just last month, and now available for viewing here. Yesterday, Tomorrowland also released the official after movie for the 2023 festival, which can be viewed here.
Mark your calendars, as Tomorrowland Belgium 2024 is set to make a grand return to De Schorre Park in Boom from July 19 to July 28, 2024.
